ScanSnap Organizer

Overview

ScanSnap Organizer makes it easier than ever to view, edit, and manage your PDF and JPEG files scanned with ScanSnap. It displays documents as thumbnails that you can preview in catalogue form for efficiency when searching. With a simple user interface, it allows you to create and sort folders without opening them, and flip through file pages quickly to save time. The conversion tool enables you to fully edit PDF files in Word and Excel, and with the ability to attach files to email or share drives, you can access and use your paperwork in a digital environment for increased productivity.


ScanSnap Organizer allows you to stay connected to all of your documents using ScanSnap Sync*, an embedded function that will synchronize files for access on your mobile devices. ScanSnap Sync automatically connects documents scanned through ScanSnap Organizer and the iOS or Android app ScanSnap Connect Application, so you can manage your information anytime, anywhere.


For more information, please view the Features tab.


*ScanSnap Sync utilizes third party cloud services Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropbox to synchronize data between Connect Application and Organizer. Initial account registration for cloud service is required.

Features

Manage scanned data efficiently

ssorg thumbneilTake control over scanned files with ScanSnap Organizer. ScanSnap Organizer Viewer has a variety of functions for scanned files; you can view and edit the files, rotate, delete, move, insert, de-skew, crop, and merge pages, and add keywords to the files. You do not have to open the view screen to confirm whether the file is the one you are searching for since the other pages are displayed as thumbnails.



Quickly access information you need with the search function

Quickly access files by converting paper documents into searchable PDF documents. ScanSnap Organizer performs a conversion while monitoring the capacity of CPU memory so the conversion takes less time to complete and the other processes on your computer are not disturbed. In addition to searching for keywords in text, you can even search pictures and illustrations once you set keywords to the scanned images.

[Notes]
There might be other limitations based on cloud services and contract type. The following limitations will be applied when available capacity of the cloud service or number of files exceed the limit.


Maximum number of files When using ScanSnap Connect Application (iOS or Android OS), the file limit is set at 10,000 files, and so lists which have more than 10,000 files cannot be displayed. In addition, if the number of files in a folder increases, then performance to display a list may be deteriorated and become slow. When the number of files is becoming large, it is recommended to create another folder in ScanSnap Organizer (Windows® or Mac OS), and limit the number of files stored in a folder to 500 files.
Maximum file size for each transaction Limitations based on OS (Desktop app)
  • ScanSnap Organizer (Windows® or Mac OS)
    Maximum file size for each transaction depends on desktop apps of cloud services. ScanSnap Organizer has no limitation on the file size for downloads or uploads.

  • ScanSnap Connect Application (iOS or Android OS)
    Maximum file size for both upload/download is 2GB. However, when using OneDrive, the size for upload is limited to 100 MB.

*The maximum file sizes shown above are applicable only when available space of cloud service is equal to or greater than file size.
Target file type PDF / JPEG
Available storage space required on the cloud service side Same as the file size of the scanned data targeted for sync.
Expected line speed/bandwidth Recommended environment: Broadband internet connection (*1)
In the case of wireless, stable line of IEEE 802.11n(2.4GHz/5GHz) or later.
Others Windows's reserved words such as nul, lpt1, com1, aux, prn cannot be used as folder name.

*1 Put a check on "Synchronize On WiFi Only" in "ScanSnap Sync Setting" (default setting is "on") if you would like to sync only while connecting via broadband connection(WiFi Connection). It prevents unexpected data transmission with the other connection(3G, 4G etc.).
